    According to a recent survey by Jobvite, San Jose State University is the top school in the nation pushing for tech talent.

    The Jobvite survey shows that SJSU has the most students hired by top tech companies in the Silicon Valley.

    The career center at SJSU helps students bridge the gap between school and work.

    "We promote and advocate internships and having that real-world experience while you’re in school, so that when you walk out of here with a degree, you also have years of experience as an intern," said Daniel Newell, Program Manager of Workforce and Economic Development.

    San Jose State was not the only school that performed well on the survey. University of Texas, Carnegie Mellon, and University of Washington also scored high.
